At the Centre for Teaching and Learning, our mission is to:

  1. Foster and enhance best practices in teaching and learning at Western, in partnership with Western Libraries, the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, and Western Technology Services.
  2. Advocate for teaching excellence and scholarship and Western, nationally, and internationally.


Our mission focused on three key goals: pedagogical excellence, mentorship and professional development, and scholarship and innovation. We offer certificate programs, workshops, conferences, communities of practice, courses, consultations, facilitation and online resources at the instructor, departmental, Faculty and institutional-level.
